Bhuvan Bam to star in Disney+ Hotstar series, Taaza Khabar
Directed by Himank Gaur, Taaza Khabar is currently under production and marks Bhuvan’s first association with Disney+ Hotstar
YouTuber-content creator Bhuvan Bam stars in the upcoming Disney+ Hotstar series Taaza Khabar.
Set in Mumbai, the comedy-drama series follows a man stumbling upon magical powers and the ripples it creates in his humble life. Directed by Himank Gaur, the show has been penned by Hussain & Abbas Dalal.
Based on the life of a sanitation worker, the series depicts class-based poverty and the human desire to lead a better life. Besides Bhuvan, the show also stars Shriya Pilgaonkar, JD Chakravarthy, Deven Bhojani, Prathmesh Parab, Nitya Mathur, Shilpa Shukla and Mithilesh Chaturvedi.
“I feel grateful that I got to explore a completely new side to wishful thinking with my character in Taaza Khabar," Bhuvan shares. "It has been a humbling experience prepping for this character and his antics. As we begin shooting, I'm confident that emoting this character is going to be fun, I already relate to this character so much. To think that I get to play this comical yet emotional character in my very first association with Disney+ Hotstar feels very special. I wholeheartedly hope the audience enjoys and cherishes this story just as much as I enjoyed bringing it to life.”
